Fender 1
Whether you’re a beginner interested in learning to play or an advanced guitarist searching for a step-up instrument to refine your technique, you can’t go wrong with a Fender electric, acoustic, or bass. The brand has made a name as the world’s most popular and consistent guitar manufacturer since the electric guitar’s early years.
At Sloan School of Music, we are proud to sell a variety of Fender products — including its Stratocaster and Telecaster — to provide guitar students throughout greater Hagerstown with the best options available. Our instructors and sellers are familiar with the intricacies of each, and are here to help you choose the instrument that matches your skill level, budget, and goals as a performer.
Hollow-body guitars were used in jazz ensembles prior to the 1950s, but Fender made a major update to its earlier instruments by introducing the first solid-body electric guitar, which became known as the Telecaster. This guitar had a richer and cleaner sound than previous models, which played a major role in helping to set rock and roll bands apart from the bands of the 1940s.
Fender also helped to make amplifiers a norm for both electric and bass guitars. This addition made it possible for modern small rock to produce as much sound as earlier big bands, which permanently shifted the typical size of popular music groups.

Fender remains a trusted brand among guitarists of every level, and its Stratocaster and Telecaster have gained reputations as some of the world’s most popular instruments. They are also a top choice for students and amateur players. Many more affordable guitars that are marketed toward beginners come with poor action, inconsistent intonation, and other problems that can hinder serious students’ progress, but Fender’s models are built to last.

Sloan School of Music knows that low-quality instruments can quickly frustrate students and reduce their interest in learning. For that reason, we are proud to sell a variety of Fender models and other high-quality instruments that set them up for success.
